It’s hard to pick a highlight for the NOVA Transition Liverpool trainees

Work experience tops the list for Liverpool trainees when they talk about their favourite parts of NOVA Transition. Other aspects they have enjoyed include meeting new people, industry visits, learning from the job coaches and meeting NOVA’s CEO, Martin Wren. The absolute highlight, though, is the graduation celebrations at the end of each year. At the end of 2015, NOVA Transition had a lot to celebrate because every trainee got into a job or training of their choice!

At NOVA Transition Liverpool, everyone is willing to put others before themselves to help those who need extra support. The trainees are also very enthusiastic to learn, eager to please and willing to take on any opportunities provided to them. 

These young people with barriers such as anxiety, mild intellectual disability, autism, post-traumatic stress disorder and ADHD are working hard to improve their listening and concentration skills, as well as their general motivation and understanding of how to handle money. Other life skills they’re learning on the way to living more independent lives include:

  • Personal skills, such as safe and hygienic food preparation, how to deal with stress and depression, and how to get organised
  • Travel skills such as trip planning and identifying the correct bus or train
  • Job-seeking skills such as writing resumes and cover letters, and identifying goals
  • Employment skills such as communication, planning an event and what not to do in the retail industry!

Work-experience highlights so far this year include:

  • McDonalds – Prestons
  • The Car Wash Club Café – Lurnea
  • Lincraft – Warwick Farm
  • PB Packing – Wetherill Park
  • Mendizabal Container Solutions – Minto
